Pre-Dev-Update Thread! Yay! :D


Nope, just very much a ‘David’ answer…see what I did there :smile:


So much for “SAFE Tinder” :joy: jk


I see there is much work going on in Github on Parsec, In the latest update there was info that the team will have a break for a week or two from Parsec, so its a bit confusing… any confirmation from the team?

Different team members had different time for holidays. As of today, we’re all back except Adam who will be on and off until the end of the month. We don’t generally go into details about everyone’s exact holiday time. This is a public forum, so you may understand why. The only reason we mentioned it last week was because we happened to have a lot of overlapping holidays, so that would have a significant impact on our velocity :wink:



Things that make you go hmmm…


what does this say?. Im not an IT guy so I dunno…


soak tests are normally internal running of the software to see if any bugs pop up. sometimes its done before releases but i think this is just one of a few before we see alpha 3.

so its like the first step to start testnets for Alpha3? Sounds good :slight_smile:


Yep. It usually means that it’s ready enough to test the whole system and see how it reacts to realistic workloads. See if there are systemic bugs or scale related bugs that don’t show up in individual module testing. Sounds very hopeful, but there could be a fair phase of this.


Is it going to be a valentine’s special update.


Is there a chance to see a testnet today? What do you guys think? :thinking:
Or is there to much that has to be done to launch a public testnet?


still alot of commits to be done according to github, sad but the pace is not the fastest

Given the Eureka moment with PARSEC several months ago, and there having been more, lesser such moments while fitting it in the resr of the code, especially with the latest couple updates talking about making PARSEC truly asynchronous and various other realizations during the realizations… I’d say… Start of Summer, just to be SAFE. I could be wrong, though… (in either direction!). For public test nets. … All I can do is encourage the devs that getting to that starting point of public test nets means the sooner THAT phase of development can eventually finish closer to 2020 and then make a badass working version of the network running by the start of Summer in 2020. Don’t mind me, just my pipe dream to make 2020 the most exciting, yet insane, year ever conceived.
